Grizzly Bear, ‘Gun-Shy’ – New Video
Where does creativity come from? Director Kris Moyes tries to distill the drive to create down to its organic essence in Grizzly Bear‘s new video for ‘Gun-Shy, the latest single off their ‘Shields’ album. “If the creativity of any living creature could be seen, what would it look like?” Moyes asked New York magazine last fall in reference to the clip, which he said was all about “extracting creativity.”
Or, as he explains in a recent comment on the band’s Tumblr: “This is an invitation for a very rare glimpse of what creative energy could look like on a molecular level. Is this is where their music comes from?” Watch as singer Ed Droste and the boys get poked and prodded by scalpels, surgical scissors, IV tubes and other instruments as they undergo the search for the science behind making cool-sounding stuff up.
